Biography

Professor Chigrinov graduated from Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Moscow Electronics Institute, the Diploma of Engineer - Mathematician (MPhil) in 1973. In 1978, he obtained PhD degree in Solid State Physics (Liquid Crystals) in the Institute of Crystallography , USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1988, he becomes a Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Science and obtained a degree of a Professor in 1998. Since 1973, he was a Senior, Leading Researcher, and then Chief of Department in Organic Intermediates & Dyes Institute (NIOPIK). Since 1996 he was working as a Leading Scientist in the Institute of Crystallography , Russian Academy of Sciences and join HKUST in 1999, as an Associate Professor. He was a coauthor of the first LC materials and devices based on Electrically Controlled Birefringence, Twisted Nematic and Supertwisted Nematic and Ferroelectric LC materials, working at understanding the fundamental aspects of LC physics and technology, including electrooptical effects in liquid crystals and optimization of LC device configurations. Some new LC Electrooptical Modes, such as Orientational Instability in Cholesteric LC, Deformed Helix Effect in Ferroelectric LC, and Total Internal Reflection, Surface Gliding Effect and Surface Induced Orientational Transition in Nematic LC were first described by him and confirmed in experiment. The classification of the Domain Structures in LC was made based on his theoretical predictions and simulation results. Efficient Modeling Universal System of LC Electrooptics software was developed with his direct participation and supervision. He was a coauthor of a pioneering work in LC Photoaligning Technology, which has about 1300 citations in scientific and technical journals. He is an Expert in Flat Panel Technology in Russia, recognized by World Technology Evaluation Centre, 1994, a Senior Member of the Society of Information Display (SID) since 2004 and become a Fellow of SID since Jan 2008. He is a member of Editorial Board of "Liquid Crystals Today" since 1996 and Associate Editor of Journal of SID since 2005. He is an author of 6 books, 15 reviews and book chapters, 281 journal papers, 617 Conference presentations and 112 patents and patent applications, including 28 US Patents in the field of liquid crystals since 1974. 17 PhD students defended their degrees under his supervision. He is a Senior Member of the Society for Information Display (SID) since 10.10.04, SID Fellow since 15.01.08. He has the Research Excellence Award of SENG, HKUST, that recognizes the efforts of an outstanding faculty member with a proven record of research excellence in May 2012, Gold Medal and The Best Award in the Invention & Innovation Awards 2014 held at the Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE) 2014, which was hosted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 20-22 Feb 2014. He is a Member of EU Academy of Sciences (EUAS) ( http://www.interpaper.org ) of distinguished members worldwide since July 2017. He is a Member of International Advisory Committee for Advanced Display Technology Conferences in Russia , Ukraine and Belarus since 1999, European SID Program Committee
